Very creative... If you decide to take the diagonal down, I think that the space in the middle is kind-of cool. I am impressed... that is thinking girl!


Very creative!

You're a truly crafty lady! I LOVE the paper and actually, I like the diagonal paper, it ties it together! What a great idea...lovin' it! (You could add fun pictures of your adventures in AZ as you go through this next year and when you're ready to move home, take the pages down, and put them in a Scrapbook!)

I can tell you're going to enjoy this year with every fiber of your being!! Colorado will still be there, and you and your girls, (Toben, too!)will be richer people with many new adventures under your belt.



What a great idea! I'm a paper crafter (rubber stamping and scrapbooking), so I have a LOT of that patterned paper, but I never thought of decorating with it! I also love the diagonal pieces!

This is a great idea Joanne!

I love scrapbook paper there are so many incredibly lovely fact I framed two different papers and Michael's has frames the fit perfectly so it is very affordable!


Joanne, what did you put the paper on? is it just on the wall?
